Giga Connections, Inc. works with Probe manufactures that use our service to plate conductive diamonds on their test probes. The small incremental cost vastly improves the probes performance to make repeatable measurements.
Functional Benefits of Plating Probes with Conductive Diamonds: Creates a Non Scrubbing Sharp Multi-Point Diamond Connection. Apply the plating to probes and it reduces the probing footprint and cuts through resistive oxide lowering the probing force for repeatable test measurement. Excellent for High Temperature probing for Accelerated Testing. Provides repeatable high bandwidth measurements when conductive diamonds on applied to oscilloscope instrument probes, reduces probing force, enables probing at Any angle, the probe tip does dull or wear out and the surface can be cleaned with common oxide remover solvents.
Types of Probes GCI can plate with Conductive Diamonds:
Oscilloscope Instrument Probes
High Voltage Test Probes
DVT Solutions LLC partnered with Giga Connections inc. to apply Gold Plated Conductive Diamond (GPCD) particles to the GigaProbes (tm) 30GHz TDR probe tips. This forms a superior, multi-point connection system on the rough surface that can pierce any contaminants on either the DUT leads or test contacts. The resulting contact resistance is fewer than 5 milliohms with no measurable inductance or capacitance after thousands of mate/demate cycles. This controlled impedance material is electrically invisible, requires as little as 10-15 grams contact force, and resists oil and dirt contaminates.
Conductive Diamond Plating has been used in military systems, including super computers and satellites, while meeting all military environmental specifications. When used as contacts on interposers, The GPCD enables 10 to 40 Gbps devices to perform the same or better within socket applications than if they were soldered directly to the board, thereby opening opportunities for a new lead- free interconnect technology.
